Acne Scars on Body and Face and Best Treatment NYC
I am sorry that you have such extensive acne scars but I have found a combination of Fraxel and eMatrix to be the best treatments for these type of scars. Microneedling with PRP can also be quite effective. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green

There are several options and are usually based on downtime/cost. Less aggressive treatments with less downtime post-procedure usually mean more treatments may be necessary but can have just as good of results. Options include fractionated CO2 lasers (most aggressive), Fraxel dual laser, Microneedling and Clear and Brilliant.
Most patients in our practice choose Fraxel treatment(s) or microneedling which I believe would both be good options for you. Talk to your board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon who frequently performs these cosmetic treatments to go over the differences as far as expected number of treatments, results, and healing time.
Hope this helps.
